Spring Weed Control

 henbit

April is here and so are the weeds. The dandelions, henbit and other broad-leaf weeds are thriving.  One option to slow down and kill the broad-leaf weeds is to use a product containing 2-4-D in the ingredient list.  2-4-D is a selective herbicide that only controls broad-leaf weeds.  There are several 2-4-D products on the market and all brands should do a great job. The best time to use 2-4-D is on a sunny, warm day.

For the organic gardener use 20% vinegar.  Vinegar is a non-selective product and will kill or damage any plant material it is applied on.  With any weed killer products always read and follow all label directions.
